Lawyers representing Florida Democrat gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum and Sen. Bill Nelson argued against denying a vote cast by a non-citizen.
In transcripts during a canvassing meeting of provisional ballots cast in Palm Beach County, a judge and supervisor made note of a ballot cast illegally, to which Gillum and Nelson’s lawyers objected.
“First one of these we’ve seen,” Judge August Bonativa announced at one point, prompting Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher to respond, “Not a U.S. citizen, not counted.”
Democrat lawyers stepped in immediately to object, though provided no reason for the objections.

Nelson’s campaign said they had not authorized any such objection while the Gillum campaign chose not to respond.
Why it matters
There are two reasons why this move by Democrat lawyers – to defend an illegal vote – is important.
First, Florida election officials have been have been chipping away at well-established leads for Republicans.
Second, in Gillum’s case, the bizarre and extraordinary actions of Broward County allowed him to rescind his original concession as the loser of the race for governor.
The Florida Election should be called in favor of Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis in that large numbers of new ballots showed up out of nowhere, and many ballots are missing or forged. An honest vote count is no longer possible-ballots massively infected. Must go with Election Night!

In particular, President Trump noted the “potential corruption going on with respect to Election Theft in Broward and Palm Beach Counties.”

Lawyers fighting for illegal votes justifies the President’s – and the nation’s – skepticism of these election officials in Florida.
Second, the very notion of counting illegal votes reinforces the Democrat plan to use illegal immigrants as a means to collect future votes for their party. They don’t give a damn about legality, they only care about power. This is a case of clear, tangible efforts by the Democrats to allow illegal votes to be counted in an election.
We thought they considered the integrity of elections to be of the utmost concern?
Even Jeb Bush thinks it’s a farce
You know it has to be bad when even Jeb Bush musters the guts and gumption to speak up.
Bush leveled Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes for destroying confidence in the electoral process due to her multiple allegations of corruption.
There is no question that Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes failed to comply with Florida law on multiple counts, undermining Floridians’ confidence in our electoral process. Supervisor Snipes should be removed from her office following the recounts.

It should be noted that it was Bush who appointed Snipes over a decade ago to fill the vacancy.
Adding illegal votes to the Florida elections is just another in a long line of examples in which Democrats have sought to create “a governing coalition for the long term.”

Yep, it is time to get rid of dumb craps.
What do the Democratic lawyers not understand about illegals voting? You have to be a citizen of this country to vote in our election! Time to start indicting people for voter fraud.
If some official rejects my vote, they should advise me and give me a chance to defend my right. Due process. Rule of law.
Few things are more insane than letting illegal aliens, or H1(b) labor pool dilution agents, vote in ANY election.
The very narrow margins in FL, GA, TX, AZ and elsewhere are DIRECTLY the result of illegals voting; as well as dead people voting and Mook Squads lead by specimens like Snipes in Broward County filling out false ballots in secret in locked rooms, and “finding” them later.
You have to be a citizen to vote in federal elections. Voting as a non-citizen is a felony. Florida law also requires that all mail-in and provisional ballots be counted within 30 minutes after polls close. This law exists because there is much potential for fraud, like people making up ballots. So toss all ballots not counted by the cutoff.
When did the laws of this country change and where is it stated that illegals can vote in our elections?l This is worse than Russia interfering in our elections and what makes it worse is the democrats are sanctioning this against the People of America! Shame on them!
Mrs.Fposting: Stating the obvious: Florida’s criminal history of voter fraud should have been addressed years ago, like right after the Al Gore fiasco. But, the incompetent government, both parties, are incompetent and would rather spend their times bickering over what their lobbyist want, instead of making sure we have fair elections.
On what grounds? Are we making up laws as we go along? What is happening to this country? Why aren’t leftist politicians being called out on this? they should all be charged with sedition!
Why should anyone bother to vote if the results have already been decided?
I hear what you’re saying. Every legal vote counts… illegal votes and duplicates must be rejected and fraud must be exposed,
